If any of you are wondering if I’m ever going to finish the Rhythm of life series, the answer is yes. I have been spending all of my extra time working on a project for Gus so I have been what ya call…filling in with other things. In the meantime, Gus has accumulated all sorts of great information about his family. I’m anxious to get started on it.
Things have been exciting in our family. My cousin, Lav’s daughter (and Ken’s too), Caitlin, and her husband, Sam recently had a beautiful baby boy. Lav has been in touch with Queen E. to get some grandmothering tips. Sometimes the connection across the pond from the states isn’t very good.
LAV: Hello HRH (short for Her Royal Highness.) What do the grandies call you? I’ve been trying to come up with a unique name for myself that’s not too stuffy.
HRH: Oh they hardly ever call me. You’d think they would ring me up once in a while wouldn’t you? Stuffy’s a pretty good name. I’ll try it out!
“Dear Stuffy, Thank you for whatever you got me for my birthday. It was my favorite gift and I will, wear it, play with it or, in the case of a gift card, spend it on something worthwhile.”
“P.S. Father wants to know if he is still on the King me list.”
LAV: I can’t wait to take the baby to the zoo, Disneyland, and Buckingham Palace to watch the changing of the guard.
HRH: Oh heavens no. I’ve never changed a diaper in my life. I think Princess Kate has, but she’s an overachiever. She even taught George to change himself.
LAV: I wanted to tell you I’m really sorry you lost your beloved Corgi, Vulcan. I have a dog named Nincompoop. We call her Ninnie.
HRH: Prince Andrew got me a new corgi for my 95th birthday. He felt sorry for me after my dorgi died, His name was Fergus.
LAV: What’s a dorgi?
HRH: A cross between a dachshund and a corgi. What is a nocanpoop? I’ve never heard of a dog that can’t poop. Are you going to send me a picture of the baby?
LAV: Am I allowed? (Lav will get it.)
